Turning Over the Earth: Poems (Paperback)
"Eloquent and poignant, worthy of sustained reading." --HAROLD BLOOM
With nods to Johannes Brahms and Joseph Haydn, Pablo Neruda, Theodore Roethke, and Christopher Smart, Ralph Black's poems in Turning Over the Earth tell of a passion for being in the world, a desire to make meaningful contact with the sensuous, both natural and human. With beautifully accessible imagery, Black explores the territory of longing and loss, love and family, wild land and city street--amazed.
